Woodruff & Co Property Consultants can assist you in extending your lease. Many properties, both flats and houses, are sold on a long leasehold basis initially with terms typically from 99 years up to 999 years. As time goes by the length of the unexpired term of the lease i.e. the number of years left on the lease reduces. As the lease term reduces the value of the property also reduces.
Happy Customers - Alan @ Williamsons Solicitors
I am a Solicitor based in the North East of England in a Practice which does a high volume of property work. I have known and dealt with Alastair Woodruff and his team over an extended period. They have always provided me with a first class service and with very helpful and constructive input into how to resolve matters where a property is found to have a significant problem. I could not recommend them more highly.
